I was off work today and did nothing but stitch! I finished my Homespun Elegance stack of pumpkins; I just have to get the little gold moon and gold stars from my LNS prob. next week; and I stitched up this little pumpkin w/blackbird from Bent Creeks " Autumn Row", I'm gonna sew it into a little pillow I believe.
I also started a Halloween stocking from Blackbird Designs Halloween booklet; it's the one with all candy corns; it's a fun stitch. I have to work tomorrow :(, some of the church people we get in are so rude; it's like they go to church and make their peace w/god and think they have a clean slate to be rude to us. LOL Hopefully it'll go by fast. Think I'll go take a shower, I didn't get up this morning til 11:30!! That's incredibly late for me; I never sleep in like that. Then Kenny made me scrambled eggs and toast and brought to me in bed. :) He does have his good days... LOL

Isn't this the most adorable little angel you've ever seen?? (other than your own of course. LOL) I've been sick the past few days and haven't been able to love on her :( I told Ashley not even to bring her over to our house because I can't love on her. I've been working on my stacking pumpkins; I should be able to finish it tonight; then I'm going to stitch on some Halloween Ornaments for my "halloween tree" we went to a yard sale and found a cute 3 ft. fake xmas tree for $5 and some baskets for .25 each; I'll post a picture tomorrow. Gonna go stitch..

Hi, I had to work today; it was slower than usual; I imange everyone is camping and having BBQ's. Kenny picked me up from work and we went to Wal-mart; how I hate that store! We went in for a few things and walked out $162 later!! But we don't have to do any grocery shopping for a while. I had to get hair color also; it seems I have to color my hair every 4 weeks now.
I let it go totally white once; but I looked too old; I'm only 49, I was lucky to inherit my grandma's beautiful white hair. But I'm not ready for that (yet). I wish it wasn't Sunday; I feel like going to Joanna's and looking around. They close at 6 on Sunday here. Today would have been my dad's 75th birthday, I lost him 5 years ago this November 6th. I am a "Daddy's girl" I'm the only girl out of 4 kids; all my brothers are younger than me. I miss him terribly. Football season is always tough on me; he was a Denver Bronco fan and I'm a die hard Steeler's fan. :) I always sent him Bronco clothes or items, he was buried in a Bronco Sweatshirt I sent him the Christmas before.
I was looking thru my stash last night and in the back of my cabinet was this WIP I started I believe in 2005. :( I don't know why I haven't finished it? I am going to finish it now. I think I"m going to go and stitch for the rest of the evening. I also won a give-a-way from Mary Kathryns blog and received my "prize" yesterday!! I was very excited!!! Thank you Mary Kathyryn, you were more than generous; I can't wait to make some strawberries and I have wanted this New Blackbird Design since it came out, it's on my "to-do soon" list!! :)
